Expert Reviews

90 Points | International Wine Cellar , July/August 2013

Medium red-ruby.  Black cherry, licorice, minerals, mint and violet on the nose. Then almost creamy in the mouth, delivering sweet flavors of dark berries, minerals and candied violet.  Some tangy red berry notes emerge with aeration, providing lift and focus, but there's an enticing  plumpness of texture here.  Finishes with very good length and lift, lovely balance and plenty of early appeal.  (ID)
